Over the course of her 66-year-reign, Queen Elizabeth has seen more than a few regime changes in American politics, and this week, she spent time with U.S. President Trump during his second official visit to the U.K. In total, she's spent time with 12 out of the last 13 sitting U.S. presidents. (Somehow, Lyndon Johnson missed the cut.) See photos of her meetings with presidents from Truman to Trump right here.
